Itinerary

Day 1

Journey through Levadia and Arachova, renowned for its vibrant, multicolored carpets, before reaching the enchanting destination of Delphi.

Nestled at the base of Mount Parnassos, between the imposing Phaedriades rocks, lies the Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, home to the renowned Oracle of ancient Greece. Delphi held a revered status as the center of the world, with mythological significance as the meeting point of two eagles dispatched by Zeus in their quest for the world's navel. This sanctuary, situated in a breathtaking landscape, served as a cultural and religious hub, symbolizing unity for the Hellenic world. It was also the venue for the Pythian Games, the second-most important games in Greece after the Olympics, held every four years.


During the golden era between the sixth and fourth centuries BC, the Delphic Oracle, conveyed by the priestess Pythia and interpreted by Apollo's priests, reached its zenith. Cities, rulers, and common individuals sought guidance from the oracle, expressing their gratitude through grand offerings and spreading its renown globally. The oracle, believed to have existed since time immemorial, successfully predicted events tied to Deukalion's cataclysm, the Argonauts' expedition, and the Trojan War.


Explore the archaeological site and Museum, home to a wealth of treasures. Notably, the museum houses the unparalleled bronze statue of the Charioteer, a gift from Polyzalos, the tyrant of Gela, in 478 B.C. The statue commemorates his victory in the Pythian Games' chariot race and stands as an exemplary masterpiece in the distinctive "severe" Attic style, attributed to a prominent artist of the time.

What did we like about Greece? The beauty, the people, the history, archaeology, mythology, the food, hospitality in hotels and restarants, everything!
Anthony from Antelope Travel planned the most wonderful vacation for us to Athens, Delphi and Meteora, Naxos, and Santorini. Everything went so smoothly from hotels, transfers, drivers, and tours. Everyone including drivers, hotel staff, and tour guides were gracious, welcoming, and went above and beyond to make us happy. Antelope Travel is located in Athens and Anthony or representatives from the agency met us and were available in each location, so we felt secure knowing that there were people in Greece to reach out to. We highly recommend this agency to plan a custom trip of a lifetime. We have wanted to visit Greece for many years and were not disappointed. Loving beautiful Greece 🇬🇷 💙 Thank you, Anthony!
